THEY ARE THE BEST FOR A FIRST READ!
Enid’s ‘Mystery’ books (The Five Find Outers and Dog) were the catalyst which encouraged me to start reading more than 50 years ago. Thank you, Enid. The BBC, many public libraries, local authorities and alleged educational experts have been completely wrong about the worth of the Blyton works.
I can remember having substantial difficulty obtaining the original books when they were published because so many shops would not stock them but they were still wonderful stories! The tales are great to read even today for their simplicity and straightforwardness.
When one did find copies of the book they were quite expensive all those years ago but great to own. I loved the letter on the back cover from Enid in some of her books which added the personal touch for the reader. The physical appearance of the books as well made them very easy to read. I treasured her books as a youngster with the way in which she constructed and wrote the stories.
So, it’s a delight to read these mystery stories again in middle age although recent editing has diminished some of the memories I have of the original editions and words used then (but I am now getting old).
Never mind… these books remain one of my best friends for life: they began my own reading adventure so do read these special adventures for yourselves and for your children.
